Elefun: The Butterfly Catchin’ Game Review (Hasbro)

What It Is

Hasbro's favorite blue elephant Elefun is back again in the Elefun: The Butterfly Catchin' Game. Snap Elefun's trunk off and load its body with the 31 included butterflies. Once all the butterflies are inside, reattach the three-foot trunk and hit the ON/OFF switch on Elefun's back to start the game. Scurry to scoop as many of the colorful butterflies as you can into your butterfly net as they shoot out Elefun's trunk. Play by color, by who gets the most butterflies, or by whoever gets the single gold butterfly wins the game.

The game also features a hole at the base of Elefun's trunk to reload the butterflies without having to remove the trunk.

Is It Fun?

Kids love the "magic" of the "butterflies" going up into the air, as well as the challenge of trying to catch them. The random nature of the game keeps it different every time, and there's a certain level of skill that will engage preschoolers as they get better at the game. They'll also use their developing counting skills and improve eye-hand coordination as they play.
